OVERVIEW

Bright, edgy shredders.

Gauges 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Hi-Beam electric guitar strings from DR are very much like their standard Tite-Fit strings in feel and flexibility, but are much brighter and have an edge to their tone. For rockers and head-bangers looking for the brightness and edge missing in the warmth and fatness of the standard Tite-Fit electric guitar string.

I've used the Tite Fits in the past and thought I'd give these a shot since they were on sale. Too bright for my taste. Very "boingy" without much fundamental note. The feel was a bit odd, too. Not my taste although the tone - or lack thereof - and feel might appeal to others.

          Comments about DR Strings LTR-9 Hi-Beam Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

          Pure and even tone from string to string. Edgy. Tight lows and sparkling highs. Bright, clean, clear. But not shrill. Just a bright, clean tone.

          Chords ring with authority. Leads drill holes into your brain. String noise is a minimum but yet the string amazingly retains special harmonic quality.

          These strings seem to be high quality and well-made. They help me make music.

          Would not hesitate to purchase them again.

          Comments about DR Strings LTR-9 Hi-Beam Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

          I was a slinky user for a long time, but got tired of them getting too slinky, too fast. So, I started trying other brands. Came up with DR High Beams. Awesome feel, great sound. Edgy, but not sharp. Has a strangely smooth sound. Awesome for shredding. Actually they feel like slinkies but without the sloppiness.

          I used to play Blue Steel strings until I was turned on to the DR Highbeams. I could not believe the differencethey are my choice for strings.

          Overtones galore

          By Nice Marmot

          from Chicago

          Comments about DR Strings LTR-9 Hi-Beam Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

          I've tried slinkies, blue steel, carvin, dhr, just about everything... And these are the best, bar none. Rock-solid tuning stability, great distorted harmonic overtones, with incredible snap for rhythm work. I had used the coated DR strings for years because they last forever, but these last almost as long, and they sound phenomenal. The only downside is that depending on your set-up, these might be too bright for clean settings, and it will resound any sloppy fretwork without mercy (which only makes you better).

          Comments about DR Strings LTR-9 Hi-Beam Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

          I have been playing on DR strings for 2 years now. Absolutely the best string for heavy whammy bar use. They keep their tone, endure the punishment and last longer than any other string made. With the nickanme "stringbreaker," I can assure you that DR strings are the strongest and best available.

          Playing my Les Paul Junior with the 500T pickups through my Marshall Bluesbreaker, running the Guvnor always had a real compressed, Dark sound. These strings help lighten it up, a definite improvement. Good for Slide guitar too.
